Eilertsen Costs Bills

Shamus • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Eilert Eilertsen opened for 36,000 from middle position, James Bills raised to 82,000 from the button, then Eilertsen announced he was four-betting to 170,000. Bills then said he reraising all in even before Eilertsen could count out the chips for his reraise.

Eilertsen finished put out his bet, then blinked slowly as he thought through what to do. "I'm more or less committed to this," he said, looking down at the 300,000 or so he had behind. Bills meanwhile had him covered with about half a million chips.

Finally Eilertsen called, showing {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}, and Bills turned over {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. The flop came {3-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{3-Clubs} to pair Eilertsen right off, and after the {10-Spades} turn and {2-Spades} river Eilertsen had scored a huge double while Bills had fallen to below 200,000.
